Council Allows Longer Hours For Marijuana Dispensary

ARIZONA:  After about 90 minutes of presentation and discussion the Town Council granted the local medical marijuana dispensary an additional eight hours of operation each week.

The council split its vote, 4-3, with Vice Mayor Dennis Brown, and Council Members Nick DePorter, Cassie Hansen and Alan Magazine supporting the change.

Mayor Linda Kavanagh and Council Members Henry Leger and Cecil Yates opposed.

It may have been a change of heart and a proposed compromise on the part of Mark Steinmetz, owner and operator for Natures AZ Medicines, which prompted the needed four-vote support.
